Changes in polarization of Gaussian Schell-model beams and partially polarized Gaussian Schell-model beams through a polarization grating
The polarization properties of Gaussian Schell-model (GSM) beams and partially polarized Gaussian Schell-model (PGSM) beams passing through a polarization grating (PG) are studied based on the beam coherence-polarization (BCP) matrix formulism, where the finite size of the PG is considered. Detailed numerical calculation results are given and compared with the previous work.
